Hastings boss: Horsham game even more important
Hastings United Football Club manager Darren Hare says that the football club's terrific midweek win has increased the significance of the next game.
United will head to Horsham in Ryman Football League Division One South today (Saturday) buoyed by their 3-0 victory at home to Greenwich Borough on Tuesday night.
Hare said: "As I said to the players on Tuesday night, beating Greenwich makes Saturday's game even more important. If we don't go there and get three points, it really dampens down the positivity of Tuesday night."
United are now 11th in the table - eight points behind Hythe Town, who occupy the final play-off spot of fifth, with four games in hand.
"Any manager would tell you they would rather have points on the board than games in hand," continued Hare, whose team has another away fixture, against Faversham Town, on Tuesday night. "I would like by Christmas to be in and around it if possible."
United are running a coach to Horsham, leaving The Pilot Field at 11.30am.
The cost is £20 for adults, with a £5 discount for supporters' club members, and £8 for all under-18s. To save a place, email [email protected] or call/text 07970 332270.
